The top five things you missed last night …
5. My introduction started with a new roll of toilet paper and a “show and tell” on how architects use it today … literally.
4. My scathing review of Vitruvius’s incomplete ideology, and announcement that I will be writing the eleventh book of De architectura with a respect to local vernacular of place, scale and culture.
3. Now, confirmed as an ICAA board member, I came out of the closet with a celebrated modern house design of mine based on Villa Stein.
2. A Italian celebration back at my office after the lecture that included family, friends, patrons … with unending music, charcuterie, and cases of Montepulciano D’Abruzzo
And the number one thing you missed last night was … me dressed in a Barney the Dinosaur costume.
Other than that it was a pretty boring night.
This reporter can, of course, attest that it was anything but that, and that the office party that followed was delightful. But the answer to the question posed by this blog, as to how the architect hobbled by his RISD education has been able to design beautiful houses, remained elusive. Only the fact of the fine architecture remains, but it remains unexplained. However, I will do everything I can to scotch the rumor that, notwithstanding his round black spectacles, David Andreozzi is not Le Corbusier separated at birth. The photograph here of the nude Corbu will prove that, at least to his own and his lovely wife’s satisfaction. Fact is, the rumor scotches itself.
